As the stigma around cannabis decreases, there are many more newbies interested in getting started on their own. Those with insomnia, anxiety, depression and pain—daily stresses we all deal with—are turning to cannabis for relief.
While it’s great that there are so many options out there now for consuming cannabis, it can be overwhelming for beginners to get started on their own. That’s why we compiled the best products for those that are new to smoking and dabbing at home. These smoking tools and accessories are easy to use on the first try. Plus, with just a couple buttons or functions, if any, they’re not overly complicated and will get the job done right.
Our #1 best-selling product, the Twist Slim Pen 2.0, is the easiest and most efficient way to vape cannabis oil. All you have to do is screw on your pre-filled cartridge to the slim, portable battery and boom, you’re ready to take a hit! You can increase the voltage (which increases the strength of your hit) by turning the dial on the bottom. But, since we recommend keeping it at the lowest setting, there’s no setup necessary for the Twist Slim Pen 2.0.
Works with: 510-thread oil cartridges and extract attachments
If dabbing with a rig and torch seems daunting to you, look no further than the Pronto. One button on this battery controls it all! Just dip the tip, which acts as a nectar collector, directly into your jar of wax and take a puff. No need to handle sticky wax!
Works with: wax concentrates
The Piper is a great beginner’s piece for flower because it’s a hand pipe and a chillum all in one. By simply detaching one part of the Piper, you can alternate between the two functions, and with a silicone exterior, it’s virtually unbreakable. The versatility of the Piper also allows you to determine with style of pipe you prefer in general!
Works with: freshly ground bud
We think the Kettle should be everyone’s first bong! It’s lightweight, handheld and so easy to use. Plus, with a silicone cover and suction cup on the bottom, it’s very difficult to break. Even part fouls wont knock this bong off of the table. Once you get comfortable with using it for flower, you can always swap out the bowl for a banger and dab with the Kettle!
Works with: flower or wax concentrates
5. Grinder Tray
The Grinder Tray is an innovative combination of—you guessed it—a grinder and a rolling tray. This makes rolling up a joint so much faster and with less waste and mess. With this little tool, you can break up your weed and roll it into a joint in one breath. It’s so simple that it’s genius!
Works with: flower
6. Hot Knife
Concentrates can be hard to handle, especially if you’re not used to loading them up into the banger. The Hot Knife makes taking a dab super easy by heating from within. This makes the wax slide right off the knife into the banger, or wherever you want it. It can even cut through hard shatter like butter.
Works with: wax concentrates and shatter
If you’re going to be smoking or dabbing at home, you need to get together some essential cleaning products for your pieces. The Clean Team Bundle is the perfect starter kit for cleaning any and all smoking accessories! It includes:

- Res wipes, which are great for quick cleanups and swiping mouthpiece and banger/bowl after use
- Silicone caps for plugging holes in rigs and bongs during cleaning so solution stays put inside the piece
Works with: smoking accessories of all materials, including glass and silicone
